See how this year’s designs reflected what it means to live and work today
by Haworth, Inc.
Since 2019, the pandemic has taken us all through a global experiment of how we live our lives. A sudden jolt had us adapting to working from home. Then, we began transitioning to work from anywhere in third spaces. And now, with hybrid working, we’re remote and working at the workplace.
At this year’s 60th edition of Salone del Mobile exposition at Milan Design Week, it was apparent that designers recognize the opportunities and responsibilities design has in today’s culture and our environment. In contrast to the grandiose installations that have marked pre-pandemic editions of the event, concepts of what it means to live and work comfortably—and responsibly—were creatively explored and presented.
